Two Little Tales.

I hope everybody had a wonderful day yesterday. I spent my day with friends and family and had a relaxing though tiring day. 

Like all times when people get together who do not see each other as often as we should or would like there are always the memories of things that brought laughter art the time.

Today I am simply going to share two very true tales that still bring a smile to my face. I hope that in the sharing of them they also start what can often be a very flat day after the bustle of Christmas.

Both tales are very true .

The first happened at a party.

One  of the boys attending the party was talking to a girl. "Isn't the head teacher a bit of a twit?" he said to the girl.

"Do you know who I am?" inquired the girl.

"No," replied the boy.

"I am the head teachers daughter," replied the girl.

"And do you know who I am ?" asked the boy.

"No, " she uttered.

"Well that is good," said the boy and strode off with a sigh of relief.

I know this is true because I happened to be the boy.

I will never forget the day I met for the first time Harry, a small boy with an impish sense of humour. 

He was trying to reach up and ring a doorbell when I was passing him. He tried about three times to jump up and ring the bell, each time missing it. 

After watching his efforts as I approached the spot where he was I reached over and pressed the bell twice a good solid ring. 

Crouching down to Harrys level I smiled and said to him, "What now little man?"

To which Harry replied, "I don't know about you mister but I am running."

I , after all those years have never ever learned to think through before opening my mouth or offering a helping hand and over the years both have often got me into difficulty. You would think we would learn.

Go with care and have a wonderful day.
